  • I am looking into getting mine done, possibly this year...

  • I think the price has come down as much as it's going to and there's a good selection of equipment out there. If I can be of service, let me know.

    Just stopped by Gulf Coast Avionics last Wednesday and they are booked until February 2019!!! Price for my Cherokee 140 with GNC255A NAV/COM and the GTX345 w/GPS Transponder installed $15,000.00 :o oh my aching heart! I don’t have a whole lot more than that in my flying Plane Project! If I told you how much $$$ I have in this plane you would :'( or be extremely jealous! LOL

  • A GNC255A is a nice radio but waaaaay too expensive. You can get a used MX-170 for about 2k and a new one for 3k. I have a GTX345 and it's a very good transponder. There are cheaper alternatives.
